PORTRAIT

A true acting talent, with intensity and a chameleonic quality, who took small steps in movies and television before breaking through in the early 2000s in films such as 21 Grams and later Frozen River, the latter for which she received numerous awards and nominations. She won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for The Fighter two years later, after which she has been remarkably prolific in everything from starring roles in independent films to several character parts in larger productions.
